Two weeks ago, BoxingWales passed the first year mark and as the new season of boxing quickly approaches us, I thought it would be a perfect time to reflect and plan our progress. If I had to rate our first year out of ten, I’d say it was a five. It wasn’t steady enough and the balance has to be met better. This time next year, I want to be sat here on our second birthday scoring BoxingWales two points higher – a seven out of ten. It was a big shame that the site was down during our first anniversary. My workload away from BoxingWales was exceptionally high, so most of August was a write off as I didn’t have the time to sort things. Never fear, some things have been fixed and other things re-juggled behind the scenes to make sure that we’re set better than before and good to go in to the new season. The only plans that are yet to be put in place are about to be. There are currently just two of us in our content team, I’d like to expand that and YOU can get involved. We have spaces for writers and photographers and it doesn’t matter what your circumstance is, if you’re a student or just someone with a hobby – you are more than welcome to contribute to BoxingWales. Don’t worry about the experience you do or don’t have, there’s only one way to get it and I’m more than willing to help you get it. There are several new series that I’d like BoxingWales to start in the new season, from looking back at historic nights to finding out what boxers do in their spare time and the training techniques that separate the successful from the rest. You don’t have to be impartial in your support for Welsh boxers, we appreciate that you’re likely to support the sport in Wales but you have to be impartial in your analysis and judgement. That’s our only writing requirement (note: spelling and grammar goes without saying). Anyone interested, contact me on For now, hwyl fawr! Dewi Powell BoxingWales Editor
